Redskins Cut 13 Players Including LB Ricky Sapp & WR Jerry Rice Jr

The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they’ve waived 11 players including WR Jerry Rice Jr, CB Trey Wolfe, CB Kenny Okoro, OT Ty Nsekhe, OLB Gabe Miller, G Rishaw Johnson, Kenny Horsley, NT Isaako Aaitui, LB Steve Beauharnais, WR Braylon Bell, and OT Edawn Coughma.

Washington also terminated the contracts of linebackers Ricky Sapp and Austin Spitler.

Both Sapp and Spitler were signed to contracts earlier in the year, so there time with the Redskins was short lived.

Sapp, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2010, but he lasted just one year with the team before he was cut loose. Sapp later signed on with the Jets where he played for three years.

The Texans claimed him off of waivers in November of last year, but he was later released towards the end of July. Houston brought him back this past July only to cut him in November.

Sapp appeared in 10 games during the 2013 season and recorded four tackles and a fumble recovery during this time.

Rice Jr went undrafted out of UCLA/UNLV, but he managed to try out for the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers last summer before signing on with Washington in June. However, he lasted just a few months before he was cut.

Rice Jr recorded just 19 receptions for 142 yards receiving and no touchdowns during his two years in college. However, he managed to catch a touchdown for UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl last season.

Beauharnais, 25, was taken in the seventh round of last year’s NFL draft by the New England Patriots. However, Beauharnais was unable to make the team coming out of the preseason and later signed on to the Redskins’ practice squad.

Last year, he appeared in three games and recorded four tackles.
